Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8150


The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a clickjacking vulnerability.


Versions of phpMyAdmin 3.5.x or 4.0.x earlier than 4.0.5 are affected by a clickjacking vulnerability within the 'Header.class.php' script due to insufficient user input sanitation. An attacker could leverage this to bypass the application's clickjacking protection mechanisms.
